Does this page mean you are safe in the tropics?: NO
Humans are stupid AF. You ever see ants carry poison to their nest and kill their colony?
Well they would never do that on purpose, humans would.
If a plane has 1 infected and now all 300 passengers + crew
lands in the tropics and they all go to movies, bars, out to eat etc, RIP.
From sources below, (TLDR)
does not like HUMIDITY - Keep at 50% RH+
does not like HEAT - Higher the temp, faster it dies
does not like Ultraviolet light does not like OZONE enveloped virus really hate DISINFECTANTS Most of all, HATES SUMMER SUNLIGHT
Summer Sunlight increases Temperature, Vitamin D synthesis, OZONE, Solar Radiation, length of sunlight in northern hemisphere.
Sunlight or, more specifically, solar UV radiation (UV) acts as the principal natural
virucide in the environment. UV radiation kills viruses by chemically modifying their
genetic material, DNA and RNA (1). Nucleic acids are damaged also by UVB and UVA but
with lower efficiency than by UVC radiation (1,64).
Why is modern Science so poor? GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT
What changes in April?
Notice Locations of both China and US are within areas of little to no UVB in winter
We know high fever won't kill it, we know likes cold
So why would be worse in the US in winter? Sunlight = UV Radiation + Vitamin D Synthesis + increased OZONE levels
If Time permits I'll write up or make a youtube of the rest below.
Two issues must be considered to determine solar inactivation of biothreat viruses:
estimating the UV sensitivity of viruses for which there is little or no experimental data
and estimating the solar UV at specific geographic locations.
